Episode #42: Gordon Biggerstaff

pox and gordon
We were so lucky to have Gordon Biggerstaff on our show this week!

Pox caught 2014 Northbound Appalachian Trail Thru-Hiker Gordon before he left for his home in Scotland.

We sat down at the Friends of the Smokies offices in Sevierville, TN.

Gordon was working the night shift when he listened to Bill Bryson’sA Walk In The Woods“, and from there the inspiration began.

There’s a discussion of bears, ice cream, how surprisingly cold Georgia can be sometimes, and lazy Rattlesnakes.

Gordon was also raising money for two separate charities as he hiked, one in the US and one in the UK
